Mayan Calendar - DIY

By Tantrawave @planetbuddha
Does the "Mayan Calendar" baffle you? Are you still wondering what it is and how it could possibly predict the "end of time"?
Did you know that 17 Mayan Calendars were discovered? So, what makes this particular (T'Zolkin) calendar so important? And, what does it look like?

Mayan Calendar - DIY

This is NOT the Mayan Calendar - It's the AZTEC Calendar.

When you hear the term "Mayan Calendar" - do you see the image to the left? This image is NOT the Mayan Calendar - it's the Aztec Calendar from centuries later than the post-classic Mayan era.
I've always been of the mindset that in order to REALLY learn about something, do the research.
Below you will find a series of Links - all informative and all regarding the Mayan culture, documented writings and lessons in the Julian, Gregorian and Mayan calendar systems.
This should keep you busy until the end of time, this coming Friday 12/21/12 at 12:21pm. *snicker* Have Fun and See you on the "Flip-side".

The Mayan Codices - 4 of them spared from Spanish Conquistador and Priest destruction - each stored in a different city's museum:http://www.famsi.org/mayawriting/

It's all about Time - Yes, other people besides Gomez, Martinez and Thompson worked on the T'zolken's "end date" by determining the beginning date of 3114 BCE. The Boehm Brothers made key discoveries in the mid-20th century.http://www.hermetic.ch/cal_stud/maya.htm#boehm_articles
